Beef tongue recalled, tonsils possibly still attached

I love the photo of the cow looking at the reader and licking her lips.
"Revenge will be mine!" she says.
Also, "Moo".

"She's got a tongue like an electric eel, and she likes the taste of a man's tonsils." -- Lord Flasheart, BlackAdder, c. 1486. I mean, 1986.

Yum, tongue.

Oh yum tongue and tonsils. Dig them teeth too.

"Beef tongue recalled"? Shoot, I recall my first (and only) beef tongue. I was visiting a south'rn boyfriend over New Year's, and, out of deference to my Yankee sensibilities, his mom decided she would alter the traditional hog-jowl-and-black-eyed-peas New Year's menu.

So imagine my gratitude when she proudly presented a whole, gigantic, cow's tongue, immense taste-buds and all, on a platter the size of a small parking lot.

I was a good guest, and dutifully ate my portion - being very aware that if I had never seen it 'whole', I probably would have enjoyed the flavor. But those first impressions are hard to shake.

I'm with Betsy. I was in Paris (fadeout to Humphrey B) with a group of girls and someone ordeder beef tongue. Since I had the reputation of being able to eat anything, they gave it to me. You could see the taste buds. I couldn't handle it. It was probably great.....

As an old boss of mine used to say, I'm going to get all vulnerable here -- when I was in grade school, my favorite brown-bag lunch was peanut butter and tongue sandwiches.

There, I said it. I feel better now.

Omni...and some of othe rest of us are feeling waaay worse. Oogh.
